Build a Dog First Aid Kit

Safety First!

We always bring a first aid kit for our dogs when we vacation. When we're at home we keep it in a handy location as well. You can certainly purchase a ready made kit, but you can also make one of your own.   Here are some important items to consider including in your own.

Gauze
Clippers or Small Scissors
Hydrogen Peroxide
Aspirin
Allergy Medication
Cotton Balls
Eye Wash
Anti-itch Spray
Ear Wash
Topical Antibiotic Ointment
Blood Clotting Gel
EMT Gel (Thanks Jodi!)
Cold Compress
Thermometer
Syringe
Gloves
Tick Removal Tool

  5. Good advice, it's always wise to be prepared. I would suggest some EMT gel as well. It is supposed to have great healing powers. :-)

  8. That is very good advice. I'll have to put one of those together for Duke although he doesn't do much traveling. He's a stay at home kind of dog :)
    Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
